Service Description
Hi, I'm Bo. I'm new to MadPaws, but I've been pet/house sitting since 2014. I'm the ideal pet carer! I have a background in zoology and worked at Werribee Open Range Zoo, before moving in to online journalism so I love animals and am skilled in their handling and care. I specialise in long-stay house sitting so that your pet feels as safe and as happy as they would with you. I pet sit in your home while you are away for trips as short as 10 days through to holidays as long as 10 months! I I've been pet/house sitting professionally for three years and it's easy and awesome! I have looked after recuse, high needs and young cats and dogs. I'm a freelance journalist, which means I have flexible hours, making for an ideal pet carer. I also specialise in dog training for dogs you thought would never learn to walk without pulling. I run regular dog walking services for pets who get bored and lonely during the day. I can take up to 5 dogs at a time! I can provide all pet care including morning and evening walks, feeding, medication, grooming, bathing, garden cleaning and play/training. I can keep my pet-care rates low for long-term stays because I don't need to account for travel costs. I'm new to MadPaws, but I have lots of great references on my other pet carer profiles, I have four! Feel free to ask to see them. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

Review And Testimonials
liz r.
A friend recommended Bo as a house and dog sitter. Bo prepared thoroughly for her visit, seeking to fully understand our pooch's daily routine, likes and dislikes. We went away, feeling confident she would take good care of our property and cocker spaniel. And she did. We have just engaged her again for our next holiday!

Bo did an excellent job of looking after our two cats, Nimbus and Piper whilst we were overseas for an extended period. Piper has special dietary requirements and both cats love each other's food which can make meal times complicated, however, Bo managed all of this perfectly during our absence. On return both cats were happy and healthy. We have no hesitation in recommending Bo as a pet sitter. Cathy M. and Dave F.
